Many of us do the research, ask questions, look for the best deals, and then buy a set of phones. Most of us expect good sq and build quality of the phones we purchase after doing such an exhaustive search. But even still, what phones have you experienced that even surpassed your expectations and made you extremely pleased with your purchase? I own a few good sets of phones, but really I would have to say it was my HD 25 I II. They are an unassuming looking set of cans that simply sound terrific and I was blown away. Thanks to the headfiers who said so many cool things about these phones and made me take the chance on them.
